About

Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England! 

Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O’Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival. 

Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled “Wire and Thorns” reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release. This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, where he premiered his first major single, the appropriately titled ‘Englishman – written and produced with the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper. 

The most exciting new development, however, is the new music that Jake has now recorded to launch the next phase of his career. This is led by the joyous forthcoming single, ‘Home’, written and produced with Rolling Stones keyboardist, Matt Clifford.

With an evocative mix of Mumfords, Eagles and even Springsteen, ‘Home’ is the definitive track that firmly stamps Jake Morrell’s name across the UK country music scene.

‘It’s great to see Jake Morrell flying the flag for British Country’ – Dermot O’Leary, BBC Radio 2

‘Jake Morrell is one of about fifteen solo male country singer-songwriters in the UK. He’s also one of the best, as his latest EP Englishman shows’ –  Lyric Magazine
